Commander rear door latch
Hi, I am new to this forum amd would like to get some help. My Commanders rear door lifgate does not want to latch. My Commander is a 2006 Hemi.

Have you looked to see if the latch is in the open position?

Agree with 10Xk, sometimes the little latch will stay open, happens on my zj when i take the doors off and put the back on, just needs a push of the finger.. but when it happens to me, the door "bounces" back, what happens when you try to close it?

It just bounce back. It seems as if the electric lock does not engage. I will probably have to replace the lok :-(

Sounds like its in the closed position.

This is what the open position looks like.

Yes it is in the close position. Can it be fixed?

Screw driver and two people. One pulls the open handle while the other manually opens latch with screw driver while handle is pulled.

You can open it but it close again immediately.

The time now is 09:23 PM.
